A business in Downham has raised more than £9,000 for cancer patients at Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Downham Home and Garden Store has raised the sum through a variety of fundraising events held from last year to this July.

Monthly charity bingo games, car boot sales and Swinging Sixties nights all helped them raised the £9,461.

A cheque was handed over to Margaret Carter on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support on Friday, July 21.

The funds will go to the QEH – £3,000 of which has already been invested in a chemotherapy pump.

Directors of the store Tim and Julie Glover thanked everyone who donated.
